I started writing for this site called "Emerging Cast" - an English/Spanish site that produces videos seeming to cater to the teen market. They only pay $2 for each one they accept - and I already got 2 accepted! I know it's a pittance lol, but they paid me for my writing!!! I am so psyched. And this is after getting paid $4 for my news/opinion piece on Yahoo!!! The bad news is, I submitted another of these short articles to Emerging Cast last night and they rejected it! I hadn't realized something they wanted me to fix - so that part was on me - but they also said it was "awkwardly worded" which I know is not true! LOL! Whatever - this is actually a good thing. I MUST learn to take rejection if I'm going to be a writer, no? And for me, that fear of failure that's been a huge impediment. So although it sounds Pollyana-ish, I really do welcome the rejection (sort of, lol).
I love this writing thing!!!!!!!
